Re: Unleaded?

As to the availability of non-ethanol gas, you have, or will, find the marinas with gas docks carry non-ethanol gas, but at a ridiculous price. However, you can find non-ethanol gas at some service stations. Casey's is a chain the admiral and I found carrying that gas last summer while on a car trip...

Re: Cockpit hard top

There was a member who was out of Louisville, Ky who used a scrapped roof from a 32' to fabricate a cockpit hardtop. I've looked for him on the site but he's not turning up. The end result was beautiful and amazingly functional - it had a slide for the kids on that section to it was plenty sturdy. A...

Re: It may be official...

Jim,
For those unfamiliar with that type of filter, could you post a pic and description of where it's normally located?

And yeah, I'll admit... I'm not sure I know either... :oops:

Re: Front berth portholes, Source for replacement window plastic

Tuggle,
I'll be going down to the boat/dock tomorrow and will measure the porthole's dimensions. Beckson's site looks very promising (as far as listed 'glass' sizes). Don't know what the cost will be yet (swallow hard, cuz it's for a boat!). :?

Front berth portholes, Source for replacement window plastic

All,
Both portholes in front berth in our '88 FB sedan are suffering from age. The raised edges of the "glass" are cracked and the hold down clamps (1 of 2 on each of the portholes) no longer have an edge to grip/tighten. Does anyone know of a source for replacement?

Thx!

Re: which prop is better

I switched to a 4 blade set in the spring of '19. Felt that there was significant improvement in performance and gas usage. I have a floscan system which gives me an accurate accounting of gas usage.

Re: Gas fillup, dilemma over

Sometimes it becomes unfathomable as to the reasoning offered by marinas as to the logic of charging exorbitant prices for non-ethanol gas. I once asked the previous marina operator as to why the high price? Three reasons: 1. They have a short season (not yearlong) to sell, 2. They really didn't wan...
